While the LDS canneries are transitioning, it may be difficult to get the items you need.  Azure Standard carries many of the same items at comparable prices.  If you are interested, please contact Sister Dayley.

Store names provided when I thought they might be helpful in keeping costs down.  If you are having a hard time finding items for the price listed, leave a comment by clicking on the link at the top of the left sidebar and I will give you my pricing info. Pricing is subject to change…as anyone shopping these days can testify!
